The £2.5 million Lambo? No bull

There were only three loopy Lamborghini Venenos made, and they've all been sold already. Sorry.

THE Geneva Motor Show kicked off on Tuesday, with the usual mix of madder-than-a-full-moon-dog concept cars, shiny new mainstream models and expensive eye candy nobody we know can afford.

Firmly in the latter camp is the loopy Lamborghini Veneno, which costs £2.5 million and looks like Batman’s idea of a Le Mans racer. It’s based on the underpinnings of the Lamborghini Aventador, which is itself no shrinking violet, but clearly not hardcore enough for the three lucky – and loaded – people who will get to own a Veneno.

The Aventador’s 6.5-litre V12 has been tweaked to produce 750bhp. Top speed is 220mph and, although there’s no word on the 0-60 time, I’ll be cancelling my order if it’s any more than three seconds.

Veneno, by the way, is the name of a bull who, in 1914, gored matador Jose Sanchez Rodriguez to death within seconds of entering the arena. Good bull. Nice bull.
